Mytilene is linked with a highway numbered (GR-67) linking to Skala Eressou on the other side of the island of Lesbos. Farmlands surround Mytilene, the mountains cover the west and to the north. The airport is located a few kilometres south of town. The city was called Midilli during Ottoman times.

non avevo mai visto prima una cattedrale collocata così a ridosso del mare. L'effetto delle sue luci a quest'ora tarda della giornata è splendido, la composizione è molto ben equilibrata ed i suoi colori sono davvero entusiasmanti. Un caro saluto.

Great night shot with the presentation of this interesting monument, very good result with this tone for the sky and the lights reflections on water.
Longroute (19396) 2010-08-02 12:43
A cathedral by the seaside! how lovely!
you chose the best hour to capture this magnificent scene and scenery: the town is shining with artificial lights and the sky is still inflamed by the setting sun: so charming! And the golden reflection on the sea makes the image even more appealing. Mytilene looks very interesting from this photo and it makes me feel like going there!
DariaK (601) 2010-08-02 14:22
Like a picture from the Arabian Nights - beautiful photo!
siamesa (27753) 2010-08-02 14:59
Boa noite Danos
Very beautiful with the magic of the night. A nice place to build a cathedral. Excellent picture. Congrats and TFS
pierrefonds (58810) 2010-08-02 15:46
The reflections on the water of the sea are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors pof the architecture of the cathedral. Using an exposure speed of 1/8 of a seconds and probably a tripod has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
subhendu_bagchi (25935) 2010-08-02 18:03
beautiful perspective here. Nice to see this night shot with the reflected light in sea. Great exposer control and fine DOF. Very good composition with the lighted sky. Tfs.

Hello Danos, Marvelous sunset shot of this city with the dominating church in the center its lighting providing a soft bright look. It looks like there might be some people or an outdoor cafe on the right. A bit to dim to really tell, but has lots of color there. Very well done. Regards, Roger

tramonto dalla tonalità calda con le luci della città che si accendono e mostrano questo bell'angolo di costa con la sua architettura.
Urs (14082) 2010-08-03 3:29
Impressive sunset photograph with all the street lights already on, very nice shot with vibrant color hues and high sharpness. Well done. Thanks for your critique of my fisherman town, however the pollution is not to blame for the red color of the soil. The soil contains a high content of iron.
pajaran (53749) 2010-08-03 3:32
Kod nas us velike vrucine.

C'est un moment bien choisi avec les couleurs pastels du ciel, la ville pleine de lumière et des reflets en avant plan, bien présenter et réaliser

rodgerg (55767) 2010-08-03 12:39
Superb nocturne shot with the dored light which arise very well in the black of the night. Incerdible and very nice reflections in the water well collected too. A night shot rich in various details well collected too.
Have a nice evening,
faletiz (10759) 2010-08-03 13:33
a beautiful night shot full of light and reflections. Beautiful sky with the last light of day and the thousand cheerful lights that suggest a cheerful summer evening.
anokutan (15097) 2010-08-03 13:44
Wonderful capture. Very sharp and clear. Love the colours.
papagolf21 (88239) 2010-08-03 13:58
Bonsoir, mon ami Danos,
Est-il possible de réunir dans un album autant de magnifiques photos ? la réponse est positive, la preuve en est encore donnée à travers cette superbe réalisation.
Une réussite à tous points de vue.
C'est toujours un plaisir de contempler vos réalisations.
raszid62 (18585) 2010-08-03 15:08
Εξαιρετική φωτογραφία τη νύχτα. Πύρινος ουρανός, κάτω από την πόλη με πολλά φώτα και τη θάλασσα kilwater κύματα σκοτεινό. Υπέροχα χρώματα και τεράστια εστίαση.
lucasgalodoido (21101) 2010-08-03 16:48
impressive the beautiful of your capture, the building is wonderful and I like the contrast, colors and lights of your compo. Great job, my friend.
josepmarin (57837) 2010-08-04 4:04
It is a fantastic capture at the golden hour executed with a great technical precision, and with a magnificent aesthetic result.
The lights, the colors and the reflections on the water form a beautiful composition, very pleasant to look at.
Excellent work, my friend.
Budapestman (82620) 2010-08-04 8:45
a beautiful view with spectacular composition, I like the POV and the amazing golden lights, the architectural details are very nice, Tfs! Have a nice day! Kellemes napot kívánok!
delpeoples (54189) 2010-08-04 18:06
Geia sou dear Danos, this nocturnal shot is beautiful, the soft tones of the sky and sea look so romantic. I can see that the lighting was difficult here and at 1/8 of a second probably needed more light. However, if you did not have a tripod, more than 1/8 second is too difficult and you must have a seady hand. Excellent work, TFS and I wish you a beautiful evening, Lisa
jhm (142067) 2010-08-05 3:56
I like the enlightenment of the Baroque dome, we can see the splendid dome of the Cathedral of San Therapon.
Also a excellent reflections in water too.
Nice composition, nice of colors too. TFS.
adramad (39528) 2010-08-05 7:15
Hello Give Us.
Very beautiful photo with the first lights of the night, the grand building meets magnificent at the edge of the sea surrounded by the lights of the city, precious sky even with the tonalities left by the Sun.
Excellent managing of the luminosity with a good brightness of image.
Philippe (11836) 2010-08-05 7:30
Hi, Danos. The white buildings of the sea front are well placed in your image. They stand out against the sea in the foreground and the silhouette of the hills and the orange sky in the background. A well-constructed image with good light.
Have a nice evening,
mkamionka (31527) 2010-08-05 8:28
wow, I am really impressed. I love this work.
Incredible colors and the great clarity at the same time create a fantastic effect. I can feel like I was there. The surface of the water is amazing it makes an excellent intro into the coastal view. Everything is beautifully decorated with this wonderful sky with a unique color. Beautiful place, excellent work, congratulations!!!

Lumières très douces pour scène nocturne très calme, une photo très reposante Danos. Je regrette un peu la zone sombre en bas à gauche.
My best regards.
jafadabret (56501) 2010-08-06 2:34
Cette photo est très réussie avec les lumières qui dévoilent cette ville dans la nuit naissante. Les reflets et la couleur du ciel sont très beaux.
Didi (58094) 2010-08-06 10:02
This is a nice orange hour.
Very good management of lights.
paololg (31448) 2010-08-06 10:20
Ciao dear Danos,
very beautiful nighttime image, with a pleasant game of reflexes on the sea. Interesting the graphic and architectural effect of the dome in contrast with the dark silhouette of the BG. Excellent work, dear friend, rich of lights and details.
Ciao, have a nice week end!
paura (47166) 2010-08-07 19:03
Fine architecture details here, friend. Lighting and composition are great. well done!
jaywalker (16101) 2010-08-08 1:04
Hi Danos, A lovely orange sky over looking the beautifully lit scene, it offers a gorgeous warm feel, a nice photo, kind regards Wilson.
denisn72 (8300) 2010-08-08 17:24
Amazing night picture! The Baroque Dome is stunning and stylish. The orange glow in the sky makes the atmosphere vibrant. I like that one. Well done!
siolaw (38292) 2010-08-09 10:50
Geia sou Danos
A pleasant mixture of deep blue and gold and a fine view onto that town. Maybe cropping just a little bit on the left would avoid this mast on top left.. but no big dal!
dip (23766) 2010-08-10 7:59
Geia sou Dano,

s_lush (16134) 2010-11-06 23:40
Although this is a night shot, it is very colorful and bright due to the well chosen time of capturing and point of view. The composition, management of light and colors and photographic qualities also are excellent here. Perfectly good job!
geoant68 (331) 2011-04-11 0:46
η νυκτερινή άποψη αυτού του κομματιού της πρωτεύουσας της Λέσβου είναι θαυμάσια,με την φωταγώγιση των κτηρίων και τις αντανακλάσεις τους στη θάλασσα,να συμπληρώνουν την ωραία αυτή φωτογραφία.
maria-v1981 (10816) 2011-09-10 9:32
Πολυ καλή νυχτερνή λήψη με υπέροχο φωτισμό το πορτοκαλί του ουρανού είναι μοναδικό. Υπέροχες λεπτομέρειες και τα φώτα δίνουν μιά ρομαντική αίγλη στην εικόνα.
sacimar (26069) 2012-01-15 14:00
this is a beautiful place and a good night shot, I like the light management, the details of the building are very good also, well seen,
Miguel82 (25547) 2013-07-03 11:06
So beautiful night panorama Danos,
Good light management, imposant monument in the center of the photo, superb colors
elenimavrandoni (14207) 2013-11-18 19:32
Δάνο, ολοι μου εχουν πεί οτι είναι πολύ ομορφα στην Μυτιλήνη και το βλέπω και στις φωτογραφίες σου...
αυτη η ωρα λοιπόν είναι άγια...οταν ολα ηρεμούν και το τοπίο λές και περιμένει εσένα να βγάλεις τήν πανέμορφη φωτογραφία σου...κρυμένοι θησαυροι είναι τα έργα σου πού τα ανακαλύπτω σιγα σιγά κάθε μέρα και ενθουσιάζομαι γι αυτην την ανακάλυψη...
